Paranormal folder.....

    I seem to have a folder on my desktop that does and does not exist.

    The system sees it, but I can delete it - Cannot read from the specified device.

    I can create an identically named folder and the system is quite happy to entertain both of them.

    I have run chkdisk and it found no errors....

    When I view it's properties all the entries are blank (no zero, blank)

    If I try and drag and drop a file into it, it creates and identical folder and puts the file in that.

    Any ideas how I can delete it?:confused:

    It was created by Get Right, my download manager....

    it is the IP address of the files I was downloading.
